Honeybees along with their hive were found in a tree outside of the University Center that was scheduled to be cut down. For the safety of the workers removing the tree and the bees, beekeeper Terry Leggett with Bee Country USA was contacted by the university to remove the bees. 

Leggett, a UTA alumnus, has been beekeeping for five years and started by helping a friend remove bees from his house. Leggett said prior to that he did not have any experience with bees.

Leggett removed the bees from the tree and placed them into a custom-made transportation box he calls a "honeybee haven" or "honeybee hotel." He will then place the bees into a permanent hive at his home.
